Junko Araki, LCPC, LPC, BC-DMT
I am a licensed clinical professional counselor (Maryland), licensed professional counselor (Washington DC), and board-certified dance/movement therapist with a background in dance and somatic counseling psychology.
I believe that our physiology and psychology are inseparable. I utilize mindfulness-based, body-oriented interventions, and creative experiential activities as therapeutic tools, along with verbal interventions, to support my clients in making choices for their integration, understanding, and change.
Junko has worked with children, adolescents, adults, families, and dancers in various settings. Treatment themes include but are not limited to mood disturbances, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, self-image, self-esteem, and identity crisis. With a holistic view of a person as a complex being with different facets and strengths, I aim to facilitate my clients' self-awareness and self-exploration toward recreating wholeness. I offer offers services in English and Japanese. 日本語でのご相談も承ります。
